Radeon Vega Frontier Edition by AMD Is a Professional Solution of the Radeon PRO Line

At the Financial Analyst Day 2017 event, AMD has presented Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which is a video card from the Radeon PRO family.



The novelty is a professional solution, based on the Vega GPU with 64 computing units (4096 streaming processors). It offers 16 GB of HBM2 memory (High Bandwidth Cache). The memory bandwidth claimed is 480 GB/sec. Single precision compute performance (FP32) is 13 TFLOPS, and the half-precision compute performance (FP16) is 25 TFLOPS. Regarding this data, one can assume that GPU frequency comes up to 1,586 MHz.


According to AMD announce, Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is a device, meant for such tasks as games and VR content development, visualisation and machine learning.


A good news is that the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards delivering starts in June this year. The price is unknown yet, however, we should remember, that we are talking about a professional device, which most likely will cost pretty much.

A Triplet of Waterblocks for Titan Z Graphics Solutions from EK Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, a well-known Slovenian manufacturer of enthusiast-level liquid coolers for GPUs, has just introduced a triplet of waterblocks for the newly arrived Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z adapters. The EK-FC Titan Z – Nickel, EK-FC Titan Z – Nickel (Original CSQ) and EK-FC Titan Z – Acetal + Nickel models are sure to provide the maximal cooling at the highest frequencies both for dual- GPUs and memory chips. All the blocks come with a transparent acrylic cover and a lid from POM ACETAL plastic.



EK-FC Titan Z waterblocks are attributed to full-cover solutions. This implies that they efficiently remove heat not only from graphics cores, but also from GDDR5 memory chips, as well as from voltage regulators of VRM subsystem. Areas in direct contact with the GPUs are equipped with micro-channels of 0.7 mm width. The blocks maintain resistance to the coolant stream; hence, they might be employed along with low-power pumps.


The waterblocks features copper nickel-plated …

Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2 (FM1) appeared in the systems HP

It is well known that part of hybrid processors AMD for platform Socket FM1 have a non-working graphics power, so for their release the market brands Athlon and Sempron are used. Last fall, it was reported about the upcoming appearance in the sale of dual-core chip Athlon II X2 221 and 198 Sempron X2, but information about its actual release appeared only now. This hitch is not surprising, given the fact that these processors are still used only on computers in the collection of HP brand for the Chinese market.



Sempron X2 198 (2.5GHz) was seen in the budget desktop HP Pavilion p6-1152cx, p6-1159cx, p6-1230cx and p6-1231cx. This CPU includes two core architectures AMD K10.5, 2x512 KB cache of second level and dual-channel DDR3-1600. The TDP level is 65W.


Athlon II X2 221 clock frequency is 2.8 GHz. Other characteristics of processor are the same as in the lower Sempron X2 198. Both models support 64-bit code, virtualization, AMD-V and instructions even SSE4a. Athlon II X2 …
